The Road to Freedom Tour Guide highlights the Black experience in Civil War-era Virginia. Through the app you will learn about and interact with these little-known stories of strife, growth, community, and more. It unleashes the power of both perspective and place by introducing historical figures that have been given little voice until now. You can explore the Road to Freedom sites at large, and investigate the state’s history through tour collections for particular Virginia cities and themes, and read the illuminating narratives of key events and locations.
